November 6, 2019
Gosling and Williams are some of the finest young actors...and Blue Valentine is the perfect showcase for their skills.
October 23, 2019
[A] vivid, heartbreaking and wonderful study of the birth and death of love.
May 8, 2019
It is, at times, difficult to watch because it feels so real, but Cianfrance inserts just enough humor to make the material more palpable.
October 12, 2018
Highly recommended, except if you choose it as your next date movie.
August 15, 2018
Director/co-writer Derek Cianfrance's insistence on framing the blue-collar story through a hipster perspective emerges as the movie's saddest aspect.
April 30, 2018
The film is non-illuminating. It depresses you but doesn't change your life.
April 11, 2018
As adult relationship dramas go [...] you've not seen something as rich, nuanced and true as Blue Valentine in a very long while.
February 6, 2018
See it for [Ryan] Gosling and [Michelle] Williams, but be advised: if you take a date, you'll be sorry.
September 9, 2017
Williams's beautiful performance is played nicely off Gosling's remarkably vulnerable performance yielding a timeless portrayal of love, romance, agony and despair.
March 11, 2016
Though difficult and never exactly enjoyable, Cianfrance's compelling and superbly acted film is still a rewarding and thought-provoking experience.
May 9, 2015
The ghost of John Cassavetes looms large over Blue Valentine. This movie destroyed me.
May 1, 2015
BLUE VALENTINE shows us the present will never be as fun as the past.
August 28, 2013
Cianfrance dives deeply into the happiness and heartache a damaged relationship can give you and has created a story that understands how real life romance actually works.
August 10, 2013
Blue Valentine is interestingly styled and shot. It features outstanding performances from Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams and an inventive screenplay and structure.
June 30, 2013
A cold but commendable relationship drama.
June 20, 2013
Unlike Bergman's searing Scenes from a Marriage, which sustains itself for every one of its 299 devastating minutes, Blue Valentine begins to falter somewhere during its 114.
October 5, 2012
[Director] Cianfrance is not interested in the Hollywood fairytale, he want to show that love can scar.
September 21, 2012
What we end up with here is 2/3 of a story that consequently feels incomplete. It obviously wanted to be something like "(500) Days of Summer" in terms of structure, but the writers just didn't know how to get up to that level.
July 12, 2012
Blue Valentine deserves a wide audience. But it is probably too authentically tragic to get it.
September 11, 2011
A pesar de su por momentos dolorosa disección de una pareja, Blue Valentine es una hermosa historia de amor condenada al fracaso (así de paradójico). Y está animada por dos intérpretes de excepción.
